of limited government. is there something they could do to the kind of blind restraint we got in the obama care decision? >> yes. this is something i bring up regularly in my short almost two years in the senate we of course have yet to process any supreme court nominees but we process with some regular arty lower court judges. and it doesn't matter whether they are district judges or circuit judges i make a practice of asking them what their views are on the enumerated powers doctrine and i will ask them to identify even if it requires some degree of speculation what if anything false outside of congress's power under the commerce clause and i make it more difficult for them by telling them that they can't identify lopez or more son and now i'll add to that n.f.i.b. as the basis of their theory. you find it interesting to see some of the responses. a lot of them look at me if i've insulted their mother or something like that. a lot of them look at me if i've asked them to derive pie to the 800th decimal from memory but it's an important question. i also think it's interesting to watch wha

"washington journal" is next. >> president obama has become the first sitting u.s. president to visit burma. he also visited thailand this weekend. today, cambodia, where he will attend a summit. in the meantime, back here in washington, congress takes a weeklong break for the thanksgiving holiday. they will come back as they ponder the fiscal cliff and how to avoid it this week. they will be back next week. lots more headlines and talk this weekend about the future of the republican party as it ponders itself. one headline says romney is digging a deeper hole for the party. we want to hear from republicans only for the first 45 minutes of its monday edition. what do you think the future of your party is, what do you stand for, and what should you stand for moving forward? here are the numbers -- ere's the "washington times" this morning, the governor of louisiana, bobby jindal. the talk continues in the party about what to romney has had to say about why he lost to the president. [video clip] >> first, governor romney is an honorable a
the conventional wisdom here in washington is that president obama is sort of in the driver's seat with these negotiations. that being said, i think that there's a good deal of pressure on both sides here. if, indeed, we go over the fiscal cliff, there are a number of things that republicans are tremendously concerned about, not the least of which is the tax increases, the expiration of the payroll tax holiday, capital gains tax increase. there are a number of things frightening republicans right now, there's a number of things that should truly be frightening democrats. democrats control the white house, they have a larger majority in the senate. there is certainly some onus on president obama, the white house and senate majority leader harry reid to show that the democratic party can govern in a moment of great fiscal crisis. so i think there's a tremendous amount of pressure to go around here. while the conventional wisdom is that the president is in the driver's seat, i think that there's plenty of leverage to be had on capitol hill. jon: and republicans are not likely going to

around. >> whoo. >> while you all were sleeping, president obama made a little bit of history. the first visit by a u.s. president to myanmar, the tiny asian country closed off for so long, they are now celebrating freedom. also the first visit to cambodia by a u.s. president. that is happening right now. >> great to be here. myanmar formerly known as burma. >>> also happening overnight, the woman at the center of the cia sex scandal, paula broadwell, surfaces at home with her husband and two young children opinion she's released a statement that we'll hear in a few moments. >>> and a brand-new update from robin coming up. she had what she calls a tuneup last week. it's all still part of her road to recovery. we have a new picture and we'll tell what you she has to say. >> love seeing that splil right now. >>> let's get to josh with the breaking news out of the middle east. >>> israelis pounding palestinian targets in gaza overnight launching dozens of new missile strikes. the death toll also climbing at this hour. almost 100 palestinians are now dead. on the israeli side, meanwhile, pow
? >> it all depends on how it gets resolved. if obama gets his way, and we get big tax increases on small businesses, but also increased double taxation of dividends and capital gains, we'll have a less friendly economic environment for investment to car inside the united states. and that would mean an incentive for companies not to conduct business here. maybe to expand their branchs and their operations overseas. yes, there's the short-term uncertainty in the fiscal cliff that's hurting, but then i actually agree with michael. it's long-term fundamentals that matter. our government is just too much of a burden. >> steve, what's at stake here? >> i want to talk about two scientists from two different fields. one is pav lolov. a dog would salivate when you put food in hem. ed prescott took that idea and said, you know what, when companies spend, they spend after and during recessions when they can count on getting r&d tax credits from the government. they become conditioned to wait for lousy times for that spending to happen. that's a problem we have with our tax code, which seems to chan
the entire arizona law, i just met the e-verify portion," i did not trust you. latinos voted for obama because they did not trust romney on the immigration question, they did not like the rhetoric. there was no reason for this, because like i say, the majority of the american people want to see immigration reform. this is something very important, and it shows why politics has to do with immigration policy. i think the anti-immigration lobby has been very effective in creating the perception that the conservative base is anti- immigrants. that is just not true. poll after poll shows, study after study shows, that the majority of conservatives believe in border security but also believe in immigration reform. before the primary season we had -- we commissioned a study to study immigration views of likely republican primary voters. your tea partyers, people committed to the conservative movement. as long as you have border security there, the support legalization, a path to citizenship, a guest worker program. included a bad word "amnesty," and when we included boris security with amnest
